Is it difficult to get the temperature comfortable in your Asheville home? Some rooms are warmer than the rest of the house, no matter what you do. Some of your family like the house to be warmer, while others like it cooler. How do you make your home comfortable for everyone? Zoning systems may be your answer.
Zoning systems divide your home into different zones, ranging in size from one large room to multiple rooms, so as to meet the heating and cooling needs of each zone. Zoning systems allow you to set the temperature lower in some parts of your home and higher in others.
If your home exhibits any of the following characteristics, zoning systems may be needed to keep the temperature regulated:
- Multi-level house
- Large open areas with vaulted ceilings, lofts, or atriums
- Extra rooms over the garage
- Finished rooms in the basement or attic
- Rooms with large windows
- Temperature patterns vary according to the time of the day
- Some of house is built over a concrete slab floor
- House has wings that extend from the main living area
The benefits of zoning systems:
- Each family member can adjust the temperature in his/her zone to his/her comfort level, leading to fewer fights between family members and increased comfort.
- Rooms with more people, such as the living room or kitchen, can be kept cooler. This is particularly ideal if you enjoy hosting social gatherings or parties.
- Thermostat can be programmed to cool or heat at particular times in particular rooms
- Zoning systems regulate the temperature throughout the house, putting an end to the hot room/cold room phenomenon and creating an overall level of comfort.
- Zoning systems save you money by allowing you to not heat or cool rooms you do not use.
